Thanks a lot to Bill for the information about this very rare piece of Russian hardware. All Photos and Text : © Bill Northcote 1999

Hi, Christian.

Thanks for your reply. I would be happy for you to include information about
my Dnepr 750cc long stroke Motocross outfit on your web site.

The Bike was imported by Neval Motorcycles in 1978, from the Factory Racing
institute. The greyscale picture I sent with my original email is the only
digital picture I have of the bike in its original configuration, from the
factory racing institute.

I am still piecing together the history of the bike, but what follows is a
brief summary of information so far.

Following initial testing of the bike by Nevals, it was decided to convert
the bike to right hand drive. The conversion was carried out by Rob
Rhindtutt, of Wasp Motorcycles, who are experts in the field of Motocross. At
this stage I do not have any digital pictures of the bike in the original
Wasp configuration.

In the late 70,s early 80,s the bike was ridden in competition, and I
understand that it was quite successful. Nick Thompson, the then British
champion rode the bike in Competition and achieved at least one win.

In the mid 80,s, the engine from the bike was used in road going outfits
owned by the importer "Nevals". It would have been at about this time that
the original Magneto ignition system, and racing carburettors where replaced
with electronic ignition, k62 carburettors, and alternator charging.

The bike was stored in a dismantled state from the late 80,s until 1996,
when Nevals rebuilt it.

I was able to buy the bike in Oct 98, and decided to have an Enduro
conversion carried out by Wasp motorcycles.

Attached you will find 6 jpeg files which show the conversion underway at
Wasp. You will also be able to see some of the unique items fitted to the
bike from the factory racing institute.

As the conversion is completed I will send you more information.

The bike is now finished and fully road legal.
It's mad, bad and dangerous to know, but great fun!!
